    (ANSAmed) - ROME, APRIL 15 - An open letter calling on the European Union to reject US President Donald Trump's plan for the Middle East and to support the two-state solution was signed by twenty-five former foreign ministers, six former prime ministers, and two former NATO secretary-generals.

    UK daily The Guardian received a copy of the letter, which includes the signatures of former Italian premier and foreign minister Massimo D'Alema and former foreign minister Franco Frattini.

    "It is time for Europe to stand by our principled parameters for peace in Israel-Palestine," the letter said.

    It called for rejecting any plan that doesn't include the creation of a Palestinian state alongside an Israeli state with Jerusalem as the capital of both.

    "Unfortunately, the current US administration has departed from longstanding US policy," on the Middle East, the letter said.

    It said the administration has "demonstrated a disturbing indifference to Israeli settlement expansion".(ANSAmed).
